I have used this for quite a few hours worth of trimming. It tackles the smaller branches with ease and makes quick work of a large spread. It handles the larger branches very well too, without bogging down. The rotating handle is great especially when tackling the sides and top of a large bush
bought in mar 2013 works fine then motor seize up in Nov 2013 now I have to go through B&D to get replacement. Used general clipping around the house.
I am convinced this hedge trimmer can cut through anything except a tree! Recently purchased a home with a neglected yard and it was super easy to use and to control.
easily handled...good blower...blades very sharp...jps
The trimmer works well but doesn't cut the thicker twigs cleanly necessitating going over some of the work more than once. The rotating blades are very convenient.
Good to reach high hedges. The length of the motor body helps add to the reach. It's also well balanced for large jobs.
